Dwarf galaxies of Earth’s second closest galaxy cluster are free of dark matter halos

The standard model of cosmology suggests that a halo of dark matter particles surrounds most galaxies. However, this halo of dark matter is invisible, but its mass exerts a strong gravitational pull on galaxies in the vicinity. A new study by the University of Bonn (Germany) and the University of Saint Andrews (Scotland) challenges this

Antimicrobial-resistant bacteria found in neonates from low- and middle-income countries

Sepsis is a primary cause of mortality in newborns, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Despite the fact that neonatal sepsis is a significant public health issue in LMICs, it is still unknown how, when, and where newborn infants acquire infections that could be fatal. Additionally, it is still unclear what variables led to

Poor health-related quality of life can lead to rare diseases

Diseases that affect a smaller number of inhabitants are said to be rare diseases. This is caused due to poor health-related quality of life. And conditions such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, pain interference, and physical function are also associated with a rare disease. People with rare disease mainly faces the inability to perform in social

A novel method for visualizing cell secretion like never before

Secreted proteins mediate essential physiological processes. Understanding the spatial and temporal dynamics of protein secretion at a single-cell level is essential to understanding numerous biological systems relevant to health and disease. However, currently available methods for studying protein secretion at the single-cell level lack spatial resolution. Hence, scientists at Washington University in St. Louis devised

Biden Takes Victory Lap as Stellar Jobs Report Cools Recession Talk

He kept the sunglasses on. As Joe Biden walked out onto the south balcony of the White House on a blisteringly hot Friday in August in Washington, he reached up to take off his signature aviator shades, but decided to leave them in place, perhaps a sign of his sunny mood after the release of

Falling Space Debris is a Bigger Menace Than Ever

History remembers October 4, 1957, a lot better than it remembers January 4, 1958—though in recent weeks, the second date is coming to loom larger than the first. October 4, 1957, was the day the Soviet Union Launched Sputnik—the world’s first satellite—an achievement that heralded the start of the space age. “RUSS SATELLITE CIRCLING EARTH,”

How The Sandman Author Neil Gaiman Drew Inspiration From His Nightmares

Years ago, at one of his earliest opportunities to speak at a university, author Neil Gaiman was informed that the English department had elected to boycott the event. Their concern? He wrote comics—and one couldn’t write comics and be a real writer. The decades that followed would suggest otherwise. Today, Neil Gaiman—the creative force behind

Bodies Bodies Bodies Updates the Old-School Slasher Formula and Ends on a High Note

One of the great pleasures of summer is the purely enjoyable, disposable horror movie, one that comes with no pretention of being “elevated”—a term that demeans the overall genre, anyway. Bodies Bodies Bodies—the English-language debut of Dutch filmmaker Halina Reijn, written by playwright Sarah DeLappe, from a story by Kristen Roupenian, of “Cat Person” fame—takes

How Psychology Can Help Fight Climate Change—And Climate Anxiety

Scientists and activists have deployed many tactics to help combat climate change: expanding technologies like wind and solar power, building better batteries to store that renewable energy, and protecting forests, all the while striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. On Aug. 4, during the American Psychological Association’s Convention in Minneapolis, nearly a dozen experts turned

World’s first synthetic embryo created without sperm

Scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science have- for the first time ever- grown synthetic embryo models of mice outside the womb using stem cells cultured in a petri dish. This is a major medical science breakthrough. What’s more, the cell culture process is also done without using fertilized eggs, thereby bypassing the need for
